Bush on late campaign blitz; gay-marriage stand draws big response (Molly Hennessy-Fiske and James Gerstenzang, 10/29/06, Los Angeles Times)

At his first campaign rally this election season, President Bush on Saturday galvanized supporters in a packed high-school gym by pledging to oppose gay marriage, a theme Republican candidates have revived after a New Jersey court ruling in favor of gay couples.

"Activist judges try to define America by court order," Bush told the crowd of 4,000 at Silver Creek High School, flanked by local Rep. Mike Sodrel, R-Ind., who is running for re-election. "Just this week in New Jersey, another activist court issued a ruling that raises doubt about the institution of marriage. We believe marriage is between a man and a woman."

At that, the crowd went wild, members shouting "USA," stomping feet and shaking pompoms.

Aren't they all supposed to be terribly upset about Jack Abramoff?

Bruno, take heart, they're in retreat. Glenn Reynolds reports the ACLU is dropping its suit against the Patriot Act.

The MSM is trying to downplay the story, no doubt cursing the judges for their rotten timing.
